Gladys Radek is organizing a walk that will be timed to the missing and murders inquiry’s session in Smithers in September.
Radek’s niece Tamara Chipman was a victim of the highway of tears in 2005 and it is her honour along with the many others who have vanished from along the highway 16 corridor, that Radek has decided to stage the walk.
She says there is a growing frustration among the victims families with the pace of the national inquiry and with what is seen as a lack of communications between the inquiry and the families.
The walk will start in Prince Rupert September 21st and finish in Smithers on the 25th which is when the inquiry will begin a session in Smithers which is the only stop in all of B.C. for the inquiry commissioners.
Radek says they are still looking for more walkers and people to support them. The route and details will be released next month.
